HP has announced the HP Pavilion Mini Desktop and the HP Stream Mini Desktop, which move away from large desktop PCs and into a more compact package.

“The desktop tower PC continues to be a focal point in the home for sharing, creating, and entertaining,” said Mike Nash, vice president, product management, Consumer Personal Systems, HP. “The HP Pavilion and HP Stream Mini Desktops deliver the benefits of a traditional desktop PC in a package that looks good sitting on a desk and is small enough to fit into an entertainment center.”

HP Pavilion Mini Desktop
At only 2.06 inches in height and weighing just 1.6 lbs., the HP Pavilion Mini Desktop can fit in the palm of a hand. It maximizes productivity enabled by Windows 8.1 and supports processors up to Intel Core i3.

Customers can store and connect to more videos and photos with up to 1 TB storage and up to 8 GB of expandable memory.

Consumers can also immerse themselves in casual gaming and entertainment using the dual display support with DisplayPort and HDMI compatible ports, giving them the ability to stream and access content on multiple screens, including TV with Quad HD support.
The HP Pavilion Mini Desktop is ENERGY STAR certified, drawing up to 45 watts of power compared to 250 watts for a typical tower PC. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allow customers to stream content from any room they choose and connect with Bluetooth accessories. With the decline of use of optical DVD media in a more connected digital world, the HP Pavilion Mini Desktop does not include an optical drive. External USB optical drive can be used through any of the four USB ports.

HP Stream Mini Desktop
Joining the line of HP Stream products is the HP Stream Mini Desktop.
The HP Stream Mini Desktop comes with value-added services including 32 GB solid-state drive (SSD) for speed and reliability, 200 GB of Microsoft OneDrive Storage for two years, and a $25 gift card for the Windows Store to purchase apps, Xbox games, music and more.

Pricing and Availability
The HP Pavilion Mini Desktop and HP Stream Mini Desktop are expected to be available in the United States on Jan. 14, 2015 at www.hpshopping.com, and select retailers on Feb. 8, 2015. Both come bundled with keyboard and mouse.
